Modified on 2009/10/14 21:48 by admin
Univasc, also known as Moexipril Hydrochloride, is indicated for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). The medication prevents the conversion of a body chemical known as angiotensin I into a substance that increases salt and water retention in the body. Univasc also improves blood circulation by reducing chemicals that restrict blood vessels.

Side effects of Univasc use include, but may not be limited to, headache, fatigue, dizziness, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, muscle aches, arrhythmia, swelling of the face, eyes and lips, fainting and rash.

A black box warning on the packaging label indicates that Univasc should be discontinued by women upon the onset of pregnancy. Univasc, an ACE inhibitor, may cause serious harm to a developing fetus if used during the second and third trimester.

See your doctor if you have experienced serious health problems after taking Univasc. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
